1 eFolio Connector Update Christa Chaffinch National Board of Medical Examiners May 4, 2012

2 Todays presentation topics Concept for the eFolio Work done to date Report on focus groups Features for Version 1 Whats next

3 Career-long Seamless Transfer of Data Compile data sets on individual learners (students, residents, practicing MDs) across the learning- practice continuum for a variety of functions Up-to-date CV / transcript Enabling important transactions ERAS, licensure, credentialing, etc. Aggregate learning experiences, milestones, assessments, etc. Applications for grants, scholarships, etc. Enable movement of data to create a continuum of reusable information

4 Key Underlying Principles Easy, Efficient Education Management Learner-driven: No data access, movement, compilation, analysis or report without explicit authorization of the individual identified by the data State of the art security: Data compilations are expunged after they have been sent to authorized viewers, but can be recompiled as needed Data sources identified: as primary source verified vs. self-reported for credibility in reporting

5 Data Commons & eFolio An app that compiles data reports for the learner and/or other authorized viewers A collection of data repositories that can provide information for the eFolio

6 Data Commons Repositories Primary Source-Verified Information: AAMC NBME And eventually, other data repositories: Specialty Boards Med schools & residency programs Clinical and EHR databases And more…
